Sharing and using Suzanne Forbes’ Free Art.

How does sharing Suzanne Forbes’ Free Art work?

Second drummer at Bei Ruth drum jam July 19 2018 by Suzanne ForbesMy live event drawings are sponsored by my Patrons from my Patreon.

My Patrons sign up for Patreon’s monthly artist support service; they pay as little as a buck a month. (you can click here to help!)

I use that money to live-draw diverse, queer, kinky, sex-positive, human moments of people living, performing, dancing and loving in Berlin.

I post my drawings as Free Art.

My mission is to be inclusive, representative, and supportive of all gender identities and consensual lifestyles.

I take the drawings home and scan them and post them on my blog and my flickr account, because flickr supports Creative Commons licensing. You can download them as Free Art.

The vast majority of my drawings are licensed Creative Commons Attribution NoDerivs NonCommercial.

That means if you credit me as Suzanne Forbes, artist, you can use them for any non-commercial purpose.

Share them anywhere, use as your twitter avatar, print out and frame at home, put on your holiday cards, show posters, instagram, whatever!!

(and in digital media, pls link to my blog, www.chipinhead.com)

(and if you have extra time or energy, to my Instagram, SuzanneForbesArtist. I don’t have Facebook.)

You don’t need to ask, it’s Free Art.

Need art with trans folx making out for a poster for a queer event? I’m happy for you to use one of mine. They belong to the community!

M at Ludwig by Suzanne Forbes feb 28 2018Musicians, artists, performers, business owners, if you or your business are depicted in the drawing you’re welcome to use it to promote yourselves, on t-shirts or albums or posters for your own profit, just credit me 🙂 for fucks’ sake, just credit me. It’s a dick move not to.

If you want to color them in with Photoshop or remix them with some other art, don’t. That’s what NoDerivs means.

My event drawing is made possible by Patreon, a subscription service to support artists.

My Patrons pay me money every month to make art. So if you share my Patreon link and encourage people to support my work documenting Berlin life it will help me buy food! You can contribute as little as a dollar/euro a month!

I don’t use photographs and I don’t make drawings from photo reference. I have to be there to draw. Sorry!

Want to buy an original drawing? They’re 50 euros. I don’t ship them unless you pay me another 50 bucks, I hate shipping things.

My drawing of you makes you unhappy? I’ll take it down, just ask!

Want a higher res file? Just ask. Want me to update how you’re linked to or credited? Just ask! donut heart drawing by Suzanne Forbes July 15 2017
